It was a saga that lingered and lingered and then lingered some more, but finally, the Manly Sea Eagles have announced that fullback Brett Stewart has re-signed with the club, on a 4-year deal.

Stewart, 27, said that he always wanted to finish his career in the maroon and white.

“I love Manly, I’ve never wanted to be anywhere else and it’s really satisfying to know I can play out my career here,” Stewart said.

“We have a really tight playing group, a really positive culture and I want to be part of that for as long as I can.”

Manly coach Geoff Toovey is pleased that Stewart has decided to remain at the club, as he sees him being a crucial part of the club’s leadership group.

“Brett is a quality player and a quality person and is an integral part of our leadership group,” Coach Geoff Toovey said.

“Needless to say, he’s highly respected by everybody at the club and it’s outstanding he remains a one-club player.”
